Reviews for Zahid A. Farooki, MD


I have been a patient of Dr. Farooki's for many years and have been so pleased with the treatment I received. My husband is also a patient and it was Dr. Farooki who diagnosed kidney failure. Thanks to him my husband promptly began treatment and was able to get a kidney transplant. His entire team, nurses, office staff, etc. are friendly and helpful. I travel from my home in Rockland County so I can remain with Dr. Farooki's practice!

   — Mirza Zakir


Dr. Farooki has been our primary physician for many years. This month I saw him for an annual physical examination which was overdue for one year because of the pandemic, He was totally friendly and personable, as usual. His examination was thorough, exhibiting caring and good judgement. I thanked him for all the help he has been for my wife and me.

   — Hewitt Jeter


Dr. Farooki is caring, knowledgeable and helpful. The efficiency of the office is truly lacking. I was there for my annual exam. I had to ask if I should fast. I had to ask when there if they needed a urine sample. I reminded the nurse and the Dr. 3 different times to renew my medications. This was not done. I had to call 3 days later to have it accomplished. This also occurred last year.Thus the 3 star rating. I went recently and Dr. Farooki is wonderful. He focuses on you and is extremely knowledgeable. My only complaint is that last year, I never received a call regarding test results. Let's hope this time I get a call about blood work results.

   — Joanne Cavera

Dr. Farooki is an awesome doctor! I have been a patient of his for almost 40 years.  He always eases any anxiety I have regarding my health.   I trust his diagnosis and treatment and continue to use him as my primary care physician.  I just wish some of his office staff could be a little more compassionate when dealing with his patients.

I have been seen him for over 10years, he is excellent, attentive, compassionate and above all he listens. He's never in a rush. I highly recommend him.

I have been going to Dr Farooki for many years.  He is a very kind and compassionate doctor who has been in practice for decades.  Yes, his office is not new but dirty as one reviewer said?  Not in my experience.   Dr Farooki is YOUR doctor.  No revolving door from a group.  For me, it's important to develop a relationship with my health professional so we get to know each other well.  My health history is more than what's on a chart.  I feel that a doctor who knows you well can treat you better. Dr Farooki is "old school" in that he listens to you.  He is a terrific diagnostician and does not order unnecessary and expensive tests.  No razzle dazzle here but what you get is excellent health care.  Isn't that what it's all about after all?

   — Barbara W.


Great doctor

   — River Edge, NJ


Outstanding Doctor. He will take the time necessary to thoroughly review you medical problems and will also follow up. A consummate professional physician.

   — Daniel S.


I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Farooki when I woke up sick one morning and I was able to get an appointment that morning! I was a first time patient there and I will definitely come back again. The staff was incredibly sweet and accommodating, and the doctor himself was fantastic. He listened to my concerns and found a treatment option was right for me. Parking was also easy (street parking right outside). Yes, the building/office was old but when I go to the doctor I don't really care much for the interior anyway. I go to get checked out and given proper medication, which I received.
